Strawberry Lemonade Look Using Aromaleigh L'Orchidee Mineral Eyeshadows

I’d received the limited edition L’orchidee eye shadow collection from Aromaleigh more than two weeks ago, but this is the first time I made a look using these shadows. I love how versatile these are. They can be as vibrant as you want them to be if you foil them. If you want subtle, wearable shades during the day even with the burst of color, apply them dry as I did in this look.

I used Indelible gel liner in Black Cherry to line.

I used MAC eyeshadow in Et tu, Bouquet? to highlight.

I also used Cory mineral blush in Naughty for this look.

Here’s a step by step illustration. All products Aromaleigh unless otherwise noted.

Apply MAC Butternutty shadestick all over lid, brows, lower lashline. Apply MAC paint pots in Greenstroke on inner lid, and Fresco Rose on outer lid.

Using a stiff shader brush (MAC 239 or Loew Cornell Maxine’s Mop 3/8″, apply Bumblebee dry on inner lid.

Using another stiff shader brush, apply Showy dry on mid to outer lid.

Using the same brush, apply Heart dry on outer V and crease.

Using the same brush, apply Bouganvillea dry on outer lid and crease. Blend with a fluffy-stiff blender brush like the MAC 217.

Apply Indelible gel liner in Black Cherry on upper lashline. Apply Bumblebee dry with a taklon liner brush on inner to mid-lower lashline, and Heart on outer lower lashline.

Apply MAC eyeshadow in Et tu, Bouquet on browbone to higlight. Apply Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero to tightline and on waterline. Apply mascara.
